Like AI and Machine Learning, Robotic Process Automation, or RPA, is another technology that is automating jobs. RPA is the use of software to automate business processes such as interpreting applications, processing transactions, dealing with data, and even replying to emails. RPA automates repetitive tasks that people used to do.
Although Forrester Research estimates RPA automation will threaten the livelihood of 230 million or more knowledge workers or approximately 9 per cent of the global workforce, RPA is also creating new jobs while altering existing jobs. McKinsey finds that less than 5 per cent of occupations can be totally automated, but about 60 per cent can be partially automated.
For you as an IT professional looking to the future and trying to understand the latest technology trends, RPA offers plenty of career opportunities, including developer, project manager, business analyst, solution architect and consultant. And these jobs pay well. An RPA developer can earn over ₹534K per year – making it the next technology trend you must keep a watch on!
Mastering RPA will help you secure high-paying jobs like:
- RPA Developer
- RPA Analyst
- RPA Architect
